Recruiting New Family Doctors to Our Community
With several doctors in our community planning for retirement in the coming years, our Division is actively recruiting new doctors to call White Rock-South Surrey home. Kay Abelson, Recruitment Specialist, is collaborating with Health Match BC to recruit to our community. Peace Arch Hospital Health Community Grant supports the White Rock-South Surrey Recruitment initiative.
We look forward to welcoming new locums and family doctors to our community and our Division. For more information, contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
You can find postings for physician positions at Health Match BC.
Why Join Our Community?
White Rock-South Surrey is a beautiful seaside community conveniently located 45 minutes from downtown Vancouver and 10 minutes from the US border. It offers rural living in areas such as Hazelmere Valley, as well as suburban residential neighbourhoods boasting a vibrant selection of well-known and independent retailers, restaurants, entertainment options, and amenities.
Our community is the perfect place for people of all ages. Home to many seniors, White Rock-South Surrey is also one of the fastest-growing areas in BC, with many young families. We have excellent schools, sporting facilities, and an active arts community.
We have Peace Arch Hospital, a full-service hospital with emergency surgery, critical care, maternity, inpatient mental-health and substance-use services, inpatient rehabilitation services, laboratory services, outpatient services, ambulatory care and a hospice.
Some family physicians in our community work in the hospital as hospitalists or provide maternity care. There are other opportunities to work in long-term care, in a youth clinic and an opioid agonist clinic.
With virtually all local family physicians choosing to become members of our Division, we are able to support each other as colleagues and collaborate on the priorities we identify to further enhance the delivery of health care in our area.
